Nørrebro

Nørrebro is a part of Copenhagen, just North of the city center from the small lakes, that might be associated with nice stores, riots, bohemic streets and charming, but worn buildings. It is a very multicultural area with many immigrants, especially from India, Turkey and Middle East, and a lot of punks and hipsters. Totally 72 000 people live in Nørrebro.


The intersection Nørrebros Runddel with the now torn down youth house to the left of the white building. The decision to tear down this meeting place for young people was probably the reason that caused the riots that has been much talked about in the media.
